This may seem like a silly question, but why do you want to blog a book? Think about it…What’s your purpose? You see, your book must share that purpose. It must have a reason to exist. If it doesn’t, no one will show up at your blog to read the posts day after day (the equivalent to turning the pages of a physical book).
What’s your mission? What do you want to accomplish by writing this book? Do you have some driving reason you must blog this book now? Does doing so fulfill your soul’s purpose? Do you want to help others? Do you have knowledge you feel compelled to share? Do you feel you can change the world with your story? Is the timing just perfect? Have you been waiting for years for science to catch up with your theories and just yesterday new evidence was revealed to support what you’ve known all along?
What’s in it for you? What will you get out of writing this book? Wealth? Fame? New clients? Expert Status? Satisfaction?
Why must you write this book? Get really clear about the answer. Write it down. Compose a mission statement.
(Tip: You’ll want to include this in your book proposal if and when you decide to submit one to an agent. This will be your Mission section.)
